Avram Grant desperate to win Nations Cup title to appease fans

Under-fire Ghana coach Avram Grant is under pressure to deliver the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations title to appease local fans.
The former Chelsea manager, who has received widespread criticism in recent months, is anxious to end the country’s 35-year wait for an African crown.
Grant has supervised a disastrous start to the country’s 2018 World Cup qualifiers, picking a just a point in their opening games.
The four-time African champions must wait until next year to be clear on the path to the global showpiece in Russia.
But coach Avram Grant has set his eyes on winning the Africa Cup of Nations crown in Gabon next year to win back the fans.
“Yes, we have African Cup. Our target is very clear. I always want to finish my contract. Our contract is the African Cup that was two years and three months, I want to win the African Cup,” he told the Ghanasoccernet.
“It will not be easy, there are other good teams but it is possible.
“In football, you cannot think beyond two or three months. Two or three months is too much. Let’s do what we need to do at the African Cup and then we think about what’s next.”
